who is left? remember, two weeks left to go now to get 10,000 signatures. and the process of getting signatures in massachusetts looks something like that right now. well, so far there is one republican state representative who says he will run. he has never run for statewide office before and has zero name recognition. also, there is a second republican candidate today who picked up the nomination papers to start his run, as well. and also has zero name recognition, never has run for office. the only political history is he said he voted for barack obama, and is listed as a donor for several democratic parties in the past year. that is who they have, after the presidential election. they have a state rep who nobody has heard of and another guy who has never run for anything, who nobody has heard of. that is it. that said, consider who they have to work with. this is the facebook page for the senate republican caucus in massachusetts. that is not like a sub-group of them. that is all of them.
